LADY SEAWARD’S VA

Church of England Primary School

Class 1 - Recp and Year 1 - Alps Class

Alps class have been working hard in our literacy and numeracy sessions. The children have been having team races to see who can read the real and nonsense words the quickest while the reception children have been acting out our story of the week. In numeracy we have been using Dienes equipment to partition numbers into tens and ones.

Welcome back! I hope you all had a wonderful half term. This week we are focussing on 'The Three Little Pigs'. We are continuing our focus on prefixes and suffixes in Year 1 while the younger children will be writing phonetically correct simple sentences. We will be starting a science topic on senses and humans and animals. In our outdoor afternoon we had a wonderful time making fairy tale trolls and monsters using natural materials. We also made sun catchers to hang in our outdoor environment.

This week is 'Cinderella' week. The children are learning about granting wishes, writing invitations to the ball, making castles and magic wands and working on numbers one more and one less. This week we have already enjoyed working as a group to make a huge outdoor castle and had fun with phonics.

The year 1 children had great fun learning how to use the I-pad to take each others photographs, take selfies and download them from the I-pad to the computer and then print them out. Well done everyone!

Welcome to another exciting week in Alps class! Our focus will be 'The Gingerbread Man' and we will be looking at numbers to 20 and 100, story sequencing and using suffixes in our writing (year 1). Today we had another amazing visitor. The woodcutter from 'Little Red Riding Hood' came to tell his side of the story and have a question and answer session with the children. (A huge thank you to Mr Melling!) In the afternoon we continued our outside sessions with making bridges for the gingerbread man to cross the rivers safely, sewing felt gingerbread men and making gingerbread men sun catchers. It has been a great Monday.

Red Riding Hood was found in our garden!!! She was very upset and the children comforted her and asked her lots of wonderful questions. This has inspired some fantastic writing for our writing wall. I'm a very proud teacher.

The children loved our Red Riding Hood afternoon outside. We made hot chocolate, read stories, found Grandma's wool basket and measured lengths of wool that had covered our trees! The children learnt about deciduous and evergreen trees and made glittery ones using their twigs. We played What time is it Mr Wolf and went on a hunt for Grandma using clues and magnifying glasses.

The reception children have been revising some of our sounds. We have made a video of these sounds to help the children practise at home. We have also been reading lots of words with those sounds in them. They are doing very well!
To support your child at home our book of the week is 'Goldilocks and the Three Bears'.  We will be looking at measurement and capacity in numeracy, suffixes and story sequencing in literacy and our royal family in topic work.  The children will be starting to learn a simple waltz in P.E and I will be teaching them about the ukulele in music.  The week will be full of fairy stories and songs, all in British Sign Language.  

Our first outdoor afternoon took place today based around the theme of Goldilocks and the Three Bears. The children created bears from our environment using leaves, twigs and mud. The teddy bears picnic focused on shape, number and pattern. We all went on a bear hunt using clues based around positional language and then finished the afternoon by making and eating porridge and reading fairy tales. We all had a great time!

We had lots of cooking fun today making melted snowman biscuits.

I am extremely proud of all the children who took part in the nativity last week. Their signing, singing, dancing and acting was tremendous and I went home very proud to be their teacher. A big thank you to Mrs Jones, Mrs Hough and Rhiannon for their hard work too.

Today we had a huge adventure as we found snow, ice and snowflakes around our school! We followed the clues to find out a snowman had stayed the weekend and had even slept in Mr Westwood's office! He had left us a letter and inspired our wonderful writing wall.

Alp's class have been enjoying lots of exciting activities. We have been continuing with our number bonds by getting cars to land on different numbers that make 10. The year 1 children have been buying objects to make 20 in our class shop. We have had fun learning our phonics in paint and coloured rice and have been reading to the class individually. Well done Alp's class!

It has been a busy week in Alp's class. Thank you to all the parents who attended the phonics workshop. I hope it helped you to understand how phonics is taught in the school. The children have taken their maths learning outside this week. We have also been constructing diggers out of bricks, changing our writing area and performing digger poetry to the children in the school. Have a wonderful weekend and see everyone on Monday.

Outdoor maths

 

In Maths, the Year 1 has worked hard to get to grips with teen numbers, as well as addition, while Reception has focussed on recognising numbers to 10. We have also had lots of fun measuring doors that mysteriously appeared on our tree overnight and finding out which one was the biggest cuddly toy on a trip to the nature garden.

 

 

 

 

Autumn 2016 Class Newsletter

Alps class has children from Reception and Year 1. We follow a broad and exciting topic curriculum. Our class is a lively and engaging environment where children learn through play.

 

        

Our teacher is Mrs Heuer-Evans

Our Topic for Spring 1 is:

Transport

Our Topic for Autumn 2 is:

We are Great Britain

This half of the Autumn Term we have spent time looking at traditional tales during our literacy sessions. We have then used the structure of these tales to help us write alternative endings or to include new characters.

At the beginning of this topic we all took a trip to Exeter's Northcott Theatre to watch 'The Snow Dragon'. For some of us this was the first time we had ever been to see a theatre production. It was brilliant and we just couldn't wait to get back to school to write all about it.

Alps Class used all of our acting skills this year to perform a truly spectacular Nativity. 'A Miracle in Town' dazzled the teachers and all of the parents. The children sang beautifully, and learnt all of their many lines. Well done!

 

Our Topic for Autumn 1 is:

Magical Me

We have enjoyed settling in to school life in Alps Class and exploring our topic. We have read lots of stories as a class and a strong favourite has been 'Room on the Broom'. We have been comparing our heights and even sorted ourselves from the tallest to the shortest. We have also made magic potions in the outside area and tried to only use full or half cups of our ingredients. This term we are covering animals including humans in our science sessions. We have been exploring our senses and thinking carefully about which part of our bodies we use in order to see, hear, taste, touch and smell.

We were very lucky and got to go and visit Darts Farm where we learnt lots about the vegetables that grow in their fields and were even read the wonderful story of 'Spookley the Square Pumpkin'.

Take a look at our photos to see what else we have been up to.
